Tutoring is about taking the confidence, knowledge, and techniques found in a session and applying them anywhere.
I was raised a native Spanish speaker and I have a passion for learning and teaching languages. I am currently fluent in English and Spanish, conversational in Italian, and I'll be tackling Mandarin next. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drama from the University of Oklahoma with an emphasis in Acting. I was lucky enough to attend OU on a National Merit Scholarship that covered my expenses almost entirely, so the National Merit qualification process is one that I deeply believe in and understand. Successful test taking is as much a product of understanding the test itself as it is the material being covered, and having one on one guidance in understanding how to take a test can markedly improve a score. An important part of gaining that understanding is working in the ways that each student learns best. In fact, I think that is one of the most fulfilling things about tutoring: finding the learning methods innate in each student and helping shape those instincts into tools for learning any material.
Outside of academics I enjoy writing, recording, and playing music in a band, acting on film, tv, and stage, sketch writing and improv, teaching and playing guitar (along with a few other instruments), listening to NPR podcasts and audiobooks on road trips, traveling, martial arts, and a healthy amount of sports fandom.
